Whether it was a hand me down, a piece of crap or a prized heirloom you never forget your first gun.

The first gun I bought was a shotgun. Specifically it was a Hatsan Escort Fieldhunter 12 gauge pump action in Mossy Oak camo. I bought it at my local sports store shortly after I got my gun license at the ripe old age of 17.

I had saved up hard so I was stoked to finally go in and throw down a fistful of cash for it. Sure the Escort was hardly the Rolls Royce of shotguns but it was rugged, simple and fit me perfectly. Besides it was the best gun that I could afford. It’s always gone bang when I needed it to.

It doesn’t get out so much anymore but I don’t think I could ever bring myself to part with it.

Right, that’s my story. What was YOUR first gun?
